Unhappy Please help I dont know what to do!

I have had temp custody of my granddaughter since 2009, she was born in 2009. My daughter has never taken responsibility for her daughter. My granddaughter do not see her mom but maybe once a week or maybe once every week and a half and she do not know her father. When her mom does come around, she shower, get dressed and leave again. What do I do? My daughter has a new boyfriend who she told me that he was on angel dust when she was mad at him. He is also in and out of jail and rehab a lot. I really donít want my granddaughter around that. I have tried time and time again to help my daughter get her life straight but, unfortunately it's been a waste of time. She was seeing a psychiatrist for a while but stopped, she wonít get a job and she is very violent physically and verbally. I love my daughter very much, but I am learning that I canít help her unless she wants to be helped, and with that being said my granddaughter has to come first. My daughter has applied for social service for my granddaughter, and keeps her benefits, spends her child support and food stamps. She does not do anything for my granddaughter. Fed up but I donít know what to do. I love my Granddaughter and I want legal custody.
